I check my downloads once or twice a week, and my biggest downloader, "Candide," seems to occasionally disappear from the search engine entirely. It's still accessible from the LibriVox catalog page, but does not show up in any search on Archive.org. Usually it will appear again in a day or two, but it's been gone for three days now. Has anyone else noticed something similar? I couldn't find a way to ask anyone at the archive...

Nope, Jeff, that's the other one. Mine's solo, in English, credited to Ted Delorme, and has around 230,000 downloads. It' can be downloaded from the page on LibriVox, which links to the file on Archive.org, but no search here seems to find it. Spooky... ^_^

Jeff,
I checked it very early on Thursday morning and it was missing. It was there on Monday morning around 8 a.m. A similar thing happened about 5 or 6 weeks ago, but it reappeared on its own within 48 hours.

Mucho arigatou,

it's been fixed: https://archive.org/search.php?query=identifier%3Acandide_librivox

problem was an impossible (02-31) date in the metadata. thanks for pointing it out. this is something we need to see if it has happened to other items (i'm certain it has.)
